While beautiful in terms of nature, Cayo Coco is hardly part of typical Cuba. These islands are isolated from the mainland, connected only by a man-made causeway several kilometers long. Access is controlled by a security checkpoint.
A visit to Morón [] is a good way to see more of what Cuba really is like. Taxi drivers can organize inexpensive tours for groups of 4-5 people which may include visiting a country farmhouse.
The language spoken in Cuba(Cayo Coco) is spanish. Cubans have free education and you will often find a Cuban able to speak many languages but sometimes not fluently. Most employees of all inclusive hotel understand and speak a basic english. outside of resorts, you may have some difficulties to communicate if you don`t understand of speak a little bit of spanish.
Many airlines and charters fly to Cayo Coco airport, Jardines del rey(king`s garden). From Canada, you have Air Canada, Sunwing, Air Transat and Canjet that provides the service from many Canadian cities.
From the airport to resorts, your transportation is already organised in big comfortable buses. It takes about 15 minutes to get to the hotels wich are all located around the same area on the north shore of Cayo Coco island. Your resort sometimes may organise disco to other resorts (so all the tourists of different resorts can party together) or go to the only night club located on Cayo Coco island, the bat cave. They provide the transportation in vans or buses for a minimum fee.
Several hotels - all "all-inclusive", most operated by foreign companies (mainly Sol Melia):
The nearest town is Morón.
Cayo Coco is very relaxing and it the perfect place to go to if you want to do close to nothing for your vacation. You will find a few resorts, a spa, an international clinic(hospital), a night club(the bat cave) and an airport. In other words, there is not much to do or to visit there but sometimes all you need for your vacation is a little calm and quiet, and you will find that in Cayo Coco.
